According to officials in Puerto Rico, this is not the first time the reggaeton star is accused of violent behavior and the police is investigating a possible pattern of abuse by Omar against the victim.

Lt. Aimee Alvarado told Radio Isla 1320 that the investigation is “ongoing and that officers are following up” on what she said were previous reports of domestic violence.

Don Omar is one of the most famous “reggaetoneros” in the industry. Omar has won 10 awards last year at the Billboard Latin Music Awards and has also appeared in several movies, including “Fast & Furious” in 2009.
